High Nessus Plugin ID 109064
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update doesn't fix a vulnerability in linux-tools, but provides support for building Linux kernel modules with the 'retpoline' mitigation for CVE-2017-5715 (Spectre variant 2).
This update also includes bug fixes from the upstream Linux 3.2 stable branch up to and including 3.2.101.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux-tools packages.
